True stories of a small flock of remarkable individuals -- and other critters.

Triangles and Circles!


What a wonderful day!  
Today for our blog tour I got to draw a cat and a chicken!
Wasn't I just gushing recently about how much I love to draw cats and chickens? 

Meet Linus and his ladies, some of the critters in Lisa Steele's menagerie:
Here the hens wait patiently behind a pinecone while Linus gives the shed a kitty-caress.  

I had the best time drawing Linus and Grace for Lisa --
Take a look over at Fresh Eggs Daily, explore this cool farmin' blog, and, yes, have another shot at winning a copy of Once Upon a Flock!

Cluck!...and Meow!

  2. Love your blog :) I showed some of the pictures to my husband and we both laughed along with the stories. We don't have chickens yet but as soon as we build a coop we will have our own little flock happening.

    I was wondering if some of your illustrations could be purchased as I think they would be lovely for our nursery!

  3. Lauren, I can't believe I'm going to miss you when you are here in Austin! I have to work in Dallas all weekend. I was EXTREMELY disappointed when I learned I was going to miss your talk at The Driscoll. In fact I don't remember being this disappointed in a very long time (maybe not since I learned just how many calories and grams of fat were in Nutella). My neighbor is the greatest lady, and she said she might get out there on Friday evening and if she does, she's going to pick up a copy of Once Upon A Flock for me. Still, I just wanted you to know that I will very much miss meeting you in person.

  4. I have my copy of your book Lauren and I LOVE IT!!! I pre-ordered from Amazon and it came right on time and it is simply beautiful. Plus with this blog tour you are doing, I can just sit back and enjoy the blog-ride to all of these wonderful blogs! Well done and congrats and that silver wyandotte illustration a couple of blogs ago was stunning. If you are in Portland, Oregon, give me a click and I'll coffee you up! I'm cheering cheering cheering!

  5. I had fun reading your book. I got to the part about Hatsy's death and knew I needed to send it to my sister-in-law as soon as possible so it would be a combination birthday and chicken condolence gift--who would have thought that the two could be combined! She and her husband recently lost Dorris, the top chicken in their 3 chicken flock. Dorris had survived a fox attack that left her legs severely injured, but she'd healed well with a few months of physical therapy and life indoors. After that, she had the attitude that she could take on the world. The fox killed her fellow flock-mate, and when my sister- and brother-in-law got two new chickens, she took on the role of their protector, having known and conquered one of the darker things in the world.
